Before I give my review of this book, I must make a FULL disclosure. I'm
a little biased. I love the entire Eternity Springs series. Nightingale
Way is the fifth book in the series, if you aren't counting the
Christmas novella. With that being said, Nightingale Way is a stand
alone book. I've been waiting for Jack to have his time in the
spotlight since the first book, Angel's Rest. In the previous four
books, Jack's character has played a supporting role. Now, finally,
we're able to actually find out who Jack really is and what makes him
tick. Nightingale Way takes place about five years after the tragedy
occurs. The Eternity Springs series is known for having wounded
characters who need to come to terms with their past. Nightingale Way is
no different. Unlike the other books, where you are only dealing with
one character needing and trying to heal, Nightingale Way offers you
two. Jack and Cat each have their own issues, separate from the issues
they have together. Jack has been scared since childhood and in a sense
is still chasing those demons. Cat experiences what I'm sure millions of
girls experience. She realizes that things aren't truly black and white
and the way they seem. What I love about this series, is its self help
aspect. There are passages where you're given the opportunity to look
inward at yourself. To explore yourself on a much deeper level. To grow
a little. My favorite quote from the book is: "It's important not
to dwell on the past. A glance back now and again doesn't hurt anything,
but a person needs to look forward. Life moves forward no matter what,
and we miss a lot of living if we spend our time looking over our
shoulder." Nightingale Way is a true fictional romance. It's one
of the reasons I love the series. The characters all find their true
happy ever after. But what I really loved about this book is that
Nightingale Way takes you through a healing and realization journey. I
received this book from the publisher in order to provide a review. But
it must also be noted that this was a book I was looking forward to
buying and reading since earlier this year. - Reviewed through Read Your Writes

Nightingale Way by Emily March ISBN: 9780345528780 Catherine, Cat had
just been drugged and kidnapped. She had written a story for the local
paper about dogfighting going on and now the mob was tied to it and
other high key figures. They had torched her house already. Her ex, jack
Davenport had taken her and was flying her to his house, as per her
mothers orders, Melinda Blackburn for safe keeping, she fears. The past
is brought up as other things trigger them. After heated topics she has
had enough and tells him she's leaving his house, but will remain in the
area. She headed to a cottage on the property of the B&B. Very
serene: creek, bikes to ride, gardens, birds and the view of the
mountains and she knows how to photograph. When Jack has an emergency
and is bandaged up they talk her into watching out for him. His cottage
will be close by to hers. She also takes a free job at the paper to just
keep busy. He fills in some missing pieces of his life, the Bade
foundation. Love this town and the talk of the shops available: coffee
shop, quilt shop, sandwich shop, restaurants, B&B, hot springs, etc.
When she fills in for the editor they start hanging around together
again, she the reporter and he the accompanying photographer as she
writes stories for the paper. She uncovers more scandals and sits on the
information she's learned for a bit... Angel's Rest is a very nice area
to heal, the angels are out in force.. Although there are a lot of
people in this book they are very easy to follow and keep separate as to
who they are and in relationships with others. While they are at the art
gallery the owner goes into labor and that sets them up to talk about
their own pregnancy... time to heal for both of them. Wedding events and
births and traveling and adventure keep them all busy for some
time...til family matters arise and work problems that need instant attention...

I love this series of books!!! So I was predisposed to loving the book before I even started - but not one page disappointed me. I loved learning Jack's story - and seeing whether or not he and Cat could repair their relationship. I also loved the chance to visit again with all the rest of the cast of characters from Eternity Springs. I love the mystery of Celeste Blessing - and always love how she shares words of wisdom with everyone - gently and wisely - letting the person figure things out for themselves, with just the hint of guidance. In particular, I loved it when she said: Forget your past. Who are you TODAY/ Decide who you are really now, not who you have been in the past. Make that decision carefully and consciously and deliberabely. Make it with the knowledge of yourself that only you possess, and then you won't be concerned with trudging in one direction or another from a crossrods, you'll have the heavens to soar. Make that decision and you'll have the power to discover who you will become." Very sage advice. If only I could practice what she preached. Can't wait to read the next book. Keep them coming, Emily March. They are wonderful!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
I totally want to have my own Jack Davenport to love and take care of me! He is a yummy, self-confident, macho alpha male. I’ve been waiting for Jack to have his own novel since he first appeared in an earlier Eternity Springs novel. He is so dark and mysterious with an air of not caring what others think.
I was shocked at the things that were revealed in Nightingale Way. Some of his barriers and walls were taken down because of his ex-wife Cat. Once again Eternity Springs works its magic to bring two lost souls together. Both Cat and Jack need to heal in various ways in order to come together as a couple. But will they do the work that is needed to heal?
I just love how whenever something is wrong with a citizen in Eternity Springs they all come together to make things better. You would never feel alone whilst living in Eternity Springs. Nightingale Way was one of my favorites in the series because it answered a lot of questions I had from previous novels in the series. It is a must read for any contemporary romance lovers! At times I went from laughing about something that happened to crying the next; a sign of an excellent book.

Broken hearts needed healing and that is just what Jack and Cat had to do. A great deal of soul searching was done and two hearts healed. Time many times is what hearts need.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This novel is our latest visit to enchanting Eternity Springs, in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. The story centers around Jack Davenport, Black Ops mystery man, and wealthy owner of Eagle's Way. The mansion sits atop a mountain, is visited by few, and is Jack's very private retreat.
Catherine Blackburn Davenport known as Cat, is a journalist that seems to find dangerous breaking stories. She just reported on a dog fighting conspiracy, that involves celebrities, and politicians alike. A fire bombing at her home demonstrates how much her life is in danger. Jack and Cat share a heartbreaking secret that tore their life and marriage apart. Now Cat needs protection. Jack will put his anger and heartbreak aside, and risk his life to keep her safe.
Eternity Springs is thriving, Angels Rest is a great success, and the mystery of the Runaway Bride is still a mystery. Celeste is still charming people's lives , and talking about moving on.
I thoroughly enjoyed this visit to Eternity Springs, would highly recommend it to other readers, and can't wait for the next story.

Cat Blackburn is a writer and animal rescuer who ends up being kidnapped by her ex-husband Jack Davenport after her house is firebombed. Cat has ticked off several people by writing an article about a local dog fighting ring. Jack gets a call from his boss (and Cat’s mother) to get her away from home for a while until things calm down. He brings her to his rural home in Eternity Springs and they discover that the feelings they once had for each other are still there. Cat gets involved with the community and begins writing for the local newspaper with Jack as her photographer. Jack reconnects with his cousin Cam and finds out that he enjoys his life in a small town setting. Seems great, life could be wonderful….
However, the issues that drove Cat and Jack apart are still there. One issue is Jack’s job and the fact that he works for Cat’s mother in some shadowy government agency. The major divide between them and the catalyst for the end of their marriage was the fact the Cat was pregnant and had to deliver a stillborn child while Jack was away on a mission, and when he returned she was unable to cope with her anger and grief. The two never supported each other or acknowledged each other’s feelings and the marriage disintegrated.
The whole Eternity Springs series has been about healing fractured relationships and this book is no different. Two people in a supportive environment, able to enjoy each other’s company without the pressures that drove them apart enable them to communicate and look at each other in a new light. The normalcy of life in a small, connected, community helps them to figure out what it is they really want from life and each other. Jack realizes that he wasn’t able to make Cat realize how much the loss of their baby affected him and went into his big, bad, agent persona. Cat learns that she didn’t give Jack a chance to grieve with her and how her actions added to their split. When Jack gets an opportunity for a new job, Cat decides that she will bow out and let him be free without even discussing it with him. Old habits die hard and this couple has to work to be together.
I have enjoyed all of the books in this series and this one was a nice addition. The idea of life in a small town full of wonderful people is comforting and adds to the overall feeling of the series. One of the themes regarding the town’s past is cleared up in this book. It is always nice to see how life is moving for characters from earlier books and to see other characters that you would like to learn more about- like Sheriff Zach! I hope we will see more of Eternity Springs.
